Glenn Greenwald, the American journalist who helped unmask government supervision with Edward Snowden, was beaten live by the far-right Brazilian reporter Augusto Nunes.

The two journalists raided Nunes & previous comments about the two adopted children of Greenwald with his husband, the Brazilian politician David Miranda.

The Jovem Pan radio show that was broadcast yesterday was streamed live on YouTube and showed the moment when Nunes makes a swing in Greenwald, starting a scuffle that the staff had to stop.

Nunes had previously suggested that a family judge should consider taking the adopted children away from Greenwald.

Greenwald said, according to Buzz feed: & # 39; What he did was the ugliest and nastiest thing I've ever seen in my career as a journalist. & # 39;

But Nunes then said Greenwald, an old critic of Jair Bolsonaro, and his husband's neglect of their children was "the most disgusting thing I've seen in my life."

In the video, Nunes asks: & # 39; Who will take care of the children? & # 39; And says that Greenwald spends his day with stolen messages while his husband works in politics in Brasilia.

The American journalist repeatedly calls him a coward before Nunes becomes violent.

People on the left gathered to defend Greenwald, but others supported Nunes for the attack.

Greenwald is prominent in Brazil for his report on the country's largest ever corruption investigation, which questions Bolsonaro's leadership and thus angeres those on the right.

One of the main sources of information is leaked texts and critics have accused him of illegal hacking, to which Nunes referred.
